Re: Mapping Festival

Full time? What sort of firm do you work for? It's something I've been interested in for a while, would love to try larger scale stuff, but can't afford the projectors...

I've got a project on the go, need to mix a bit more in the community.

Hi Cyrus well Geneva would IMO be the centre of Visual arts and VJing artists... The festival is the largest in the world held each year in and around Geneva.. I work for quite a few DJ/artists along with a lot of private corporates(not fun) Not sure if you can see the link but this is one I worked on a couple of years back in Dublin with the digital slaves..

Thats cool stuff nice YT channel.. Do you approach any of the nightclubs there at all? Are you on VJ forums? Im going to be moving to the Vaud area with my family and setting up my studio there... There are a lot of corporate companies that love this style of art and marketing its just about networking and selling the idea I guess. It is also getting a lot cheaper and easier to do with technology now...

Not yet, I DJ already, and am currently trying to build a suitable stand for the DJ booth so people can see it in the right environment, and working. I'd never really considered video to go along with DJing till someone introduced me to Quartz Composer.

That it is! Apart from the DJ kit and DVS software, I'm working mostly with the Quartz Composer, which is completely free and amazingly versatile, and started out with a bunch of hand me down projectors, though I've since got myself a nice short throw projector.
